    hi all its time to replace my pole but im looking at getting a lighter one, whats the best/lightest pole to buy n where from? 27 foot im looking at, at pure freedom they are glass fibre, carbon composite or the phoenix poles. the carbon composite and phoenix are a lot lighter than the glass fibre so it will be between the 2, but the prices of the phoenix are a lot lower than the carbon composite, can any1 enlighten me to why its cheaper etc??

    the pheonix is a very fast pole in use its lite an stiff alltho its not the litest on the market the gardener extreem will b the litest but very pricy have u looked at the xline poles very good buy all acounts alltho it will b slower in use compaired to the facelift due to having side ways clamps but will last longer :)

    I believe the phoenix become more durable the bigger they get, a lad i know has a huge one not sure exactly what size but even though its full carbon it still weighs a ton, he has had it years and never had any issues with it.

    im still unsure whether to get a phoenix , there must be reason they are a lot cheaper than other carbon poles of similar weight
